Bassoonist Pulls Off One-Man “Thomas The Tank Engine” Quartet.

Everyone deals with quarantine boredom differently. Maybe you deep cleaned your house, built a swing set for the kids, or finally beat that video game you’ve been working on forever. Michael Elderkin took a more musical approach!

Michael plays the bassoon professionally, but since work is at a standstill right now, he’s taken to recording videos of himself playing songs from movies like “Up,” “Harry Potter,” and “Monsters, Inc.” He keeps them interesting by performing each tune four separate times and editing the clips together to create a final “quartet.”

Check out his version of “Thomas The Tank Engine” in the video below, and share this story with your friends to make them smile.
